Abstract: The Preliminary Design process is examined as it was applied to design of wharves for a new container terminal in the Port of Oakland, California. The process includes active interdisciplinary collaboration among Port planners, geotechnical and design engineers and consultants on design and construction. With all participants interacting from very early stages, it becomes possible to define needed information and compare possible design systems on the basis of cost and safety, and arrive at a 'best' approach before developing construction documents.
